Malta Hotels: 35 reviews and 47 photos

  Beautiful View - and so quiet
by Theocat

It's a budget hotel, and you get what you pay for. It's fairly basic, the rooms are fairly small and some of the amenities either don't work or aren't available. It also looks like a blue and yellow sandcastle and is slightly out of the way on its own.

However, the view is fantastic (see photo) - try and get a sea view room if you can. The air con works a little too well - freezing in the morning! The staff are very nice and the owners' son is very cheeky but quite sweet. We went at the end of August 06 for a week, and it wasn't crowded at all. The most we saw of other people was when we left! The pool is small, but there rarely seemed to be anyone around it. The downside for me was that it was saltwater, which isn't my cup of tea. We had B&B board, and the breakfast was quite basic, but had everything that we wanted (cereal/toast/juice/coffee/bread&butter etc). The breakfast room was nice and big and breakfast was available for a few hours, so again it was never crowded. Full and half board is available as well.

It's a short walk down to the bus stop (5 mins max) which is nice in the summer sun, by the harbour. The buses are fairly frequent, but the best thing to do is to go into Valletta or Bugibba if you can, and then out again, as they are far more extensive and will get you where you want to go.

It's close to: Golden Bay, the Popeye Village, Bugibba, St Paul's Bay, Mellieha, the ferry port to Gozo. It's also very easy to get to Valletta, and consequently anywhere else on the island.
